Step 3: Prep Your Items

All consigned items must be CLEAN, pleasant smelling, and in WORKING order, with batteries!

To keep our reputation as providers of high quality items, we depend on you, the consignor, to screen your items. If you take extra time cleaning your items, you can ask more for them. We do inspect all items at your drop off appointment, under good lighting, which may show once unnoticed stains. We reserve the right to refuse any item due to a recall, out-of-date, dirty, stained or ripped. Shoppers appreciate our strict high standards.

Shoes

You must use a zip tie or safety pin to pair the shoes together. You may use packing tape to secure the safety pin. You can also tape the top of the tag, hole punch the tag, then put a zip tie through the tag. Be creative! All shoes can be zip tied.

Large Items

It is best to take out all large items out the box, keep the box at home, and have the item assembled at the time of your drop-off appointment. It will sell quicker when people can see what the item looks like fully assembled. Do not attach the tag on the item until you are at the store.  We will provide you with a large claim ticket to adhere the tag to.  Then you will attach the claim ticket to your item. A large item is anything it takes you two hands to hold over your head.  If you can put if over your head with one hand it is not considered a large item, and therefor does not need a large item claim tag.

Books | Games | DVDs

Please recheck to make sure DVDs, and games are in their cases and that puzzles and games have all their pieces. Use a Ziploc bag to secure all small pieces. Use packing tape to close the top of the Ziploc bag.  Check all books to make sure there are no torn, written on, or missing pages.

Step3-AllOtherItems.jpg

All Other Items

Use packing tape to secure tags only when zip ties will not work (books, toys, etc.). Small items or multiple items should be put into resealable bags with the tag secured to the outside of the bag. Make sure the bag is tightly closed with packing tape (NO SCOTCH TAPE) securing the top of the bag and all sides of tag. We want to make sure no little hands get inside the resealable bags and take out items.
